Should a tummy getting bigger ruin your sex life?

There are going to be concerns, safety precautions, and adjustments, but the fact is that your sex life isn’t going down the toilet just because there’s a baby  on the way! In fact, sex may actually feel better during pregnancy, because increased blood flow to the pelvic area can heighten the sensation during sex.

That said, there are definitely some sex positions that are easier and more comfortable as your baby belly grows. Here, 10 of the best of the best!

1. Spooning

Spooning   isn’t just sweet for getting cuddly. It can also be a super-comfortable way to have pregnant sex, because there’s no pressure on your abdomen and you have lots of movement. Plus, your partner can position themselves behind you at different angles to allow for penetration. (But you might want to avoid lying on your right side in this position.).

On a Chair

Friends of mine who’ve been through multiple pregnancies swear by this one! You sit on the chair and let him kneel in front of you. Ideally, make the chair a little higher than your guy, so he’s pushing up instead of right on the tummy.

Women on TOP

Moms can do this.. It is often proclaimed as the best position, as it keeps the belly completely out of the way..

Edge of the Bed

Image

Also called the Dr. Ruth and Dr. Amos position, this entails lying at the end of the bed or toward the corner of the bed, with your partner kneeling or standing on the floor at the foot of the bed.

Oral Sex

Not exactly a “position” per se, but it pays to know that performing oral sex or having oral sex performed on you is certainly not out of the question! Just know that your partner shouldn’t be blowing air into your vagina, as it could cause an embolism (air getting into your blood stream), which could be life-threatening to you and the baby. But as long as you avoid “heavy winds” down there, you should be fine!

 

PROPPED ON PILLOWS

Missionary   can get challenging if you’re not supposed to be lying flat on your back, so add a few pillows, and you’re good to go!

Reverse Cowgirl

The “reverse” of woman on top, where you face your partner’s feet,instead of his face..A backward sit up.  keeps the weight off your belly and allows you to control the pace and depth of movement.

Policeman

Image

Nicknamed the “policeman” position — because it’s like you’re being frisked by the police — you stand facing the wall with your palms spread and your legs spread.  “Surrender – Face the wall with palms up” ….If your arms get tired, you can use your elbows to lean against the wall.

Leap Frog

Image

Consider using the mattress as your ultimate support system, like with this position, where you’re on all fours and resting your arms and head on the mattress to help hold the weight of your stomach.

Scissors


Image

According to experts, the scissor’s  position  generally makes for gentler and slower penetration (which would explain why it’s often recommended for pregnant women)!
